I was named Leander, after the Greek legend. I am really glad that I can use this name, because for me it sounds so powerful and good. Leander means lion man too, btw. But sometimes it's a pain because 97% of people haven't heard this name before and I need to say it 3-4 times when I meet someone :')

Great! It's popular in Norway, and it's way better than the similar looking Leonard (which I recently discovered is NOT pronounced lee-O-nahrd). In addition, it carries mythological associations! Fantastic! Plus I like oleanders, which are unfortunately poisonous. Haha, great name!

Anonymous personage commenting that this name isn't suitable for children: if not for children, who else will take it? Some names may seem odd on a four-year-old, but it's better than having a kiddie name when you're forty.

Beautiful handsome name that sounds noble and sexy at the same time. It was quite popular in the late 19th century - maybe it's time for a revival?

Wow, it even has a sort of feline sound. A bit too yowly for my tastes. Oleander just sounds so much more mysterious.

I like it a lot; it's an incredibly strong name for a boy, and it's not at all common in the US, where I live. I can imagine that it's a really great name for a boy to grow up with. I also like the nickname Lee for it.

This is one of my favorite boys' names. I really like the nickname Lee. I love the meaning, and the mythological story. It's not at all common here in America and so lovely.

In my opinion, this BOY name has become WAAAY too common in Norway.

Generally I don't think Mythology names should be used much for children, but this is one of the few Mythology names that I think would still be alright for to name your child these days. It just works so nicely. It has such nice pronunciation and spelling.

I think this sounds more like a girl's name. I created a character (girl) named Leander, and her nickname is Linder.
